Demokratie unter Bedingungen der Weltgesellschaft?
Normative Grundlagen legitimer Herrschaft in einer globalen politischen Ordnung
[Democracy under the conditions of a world society?]
Series:Ideen & Argumente
Aims and Scope
This study investigates the conditions of legitimate rule and argues that legitimacy can only be realized in a tiered global order. It criticizes theories of justice, democratic theory, legal philosophy, and philosophy of human rights and international relations, while developing a conception of transnational democracy. This conception connects states and other forms of organization into a global legal network that guarantees conditions of freedom in and between states.
